It's still the satellite that eludes me. I can only lock some data transponder on it...looks like 1.8m is the minimum required for this sat

The weakest signal @ 18°W is 4026 R 9036 5/6, it was possible to lock it during few days when the FEC was 3/4 in february 2015.

@nelson_b : can you chek this frequency 4026 R 9036 5/6 with your prodelin ?

Need to investigate.
